Jetbot from CAD

Omniverse Isaac Sim comes with a STEP version of the JetBot. To load it, go to Isaac Utils->Step Importer, select the Built-in Step Files, pick the JetBot. You can make changes to its tesselation quality and material shader properties. For more details on that, check The Step Importer Guide.

Once all import changes are made to satisfaction, click on Finish Import, and select Save Flattened. This will save the entire jetbot as a single USD, making it easier to make further changes to its structure.
